INFORMATION ABOUT NEGATIVE IONS AND FAR INFRA RED

NEGATIVE IONS

What are negative ions?


Negative ions occur naturally in the air and are produced by lightning,
ocean surf and waterfalls. There are also electrical devices called 'air
ionizers' that produce negative air ions. Such air ionizers have been
used in the treatment of seasonal winter depression (SAD).
Technically, negative ions are atoms or molecules of oxygen (or
carbon dioxide) in the air that have gained an electron.
Negatively charged molecules of air, or negative ions, promote a
sense of well-being for people. Remember that feeling you've
experienced near a waterfall or high in the mountains? Those are two
places that thousands of negative ions occur. They create an effect on
human biochemistry.

Health Benefits of Negative Ions


The astounding degree to which negative ions can contribute to good
health is becoming increasingly apparent, as extensive research on
the subject suggests. Negative ions are in the air that we breathe as
well as in our bodies. They neutralize free radicals, revitalize cell
metabolism and enhance immune function. In addition, they purify
the blood and balance the autonomic nervous system, promoting
deep sleep and healthy digestion. Negative ions also protect the body
and mind from the harmful effects of environmental stressors such as
electromagnetic fields. See below for more on the amazing healing
properties of negative ions In order to ensure our health and well
being, it is crucial that we surround ourselves with a sufficient amount
of negative ions. In addition to wearing Ionic Balance Bracelets, which
produce negative ions and may elevate their levels in our bodies,
eating clean, healthy, alkaline-producing foods can also increase our
negative ion levels.

What are Ions?


Ancient peoples recognized that the air is "electric," so to speak, but it
is thought that the formal study of ions did not begin until fairly
recently.
In 1899, two German scientists, Elster and Geitel, discovered that
there are particles in the atmosphere that carry electricity. These
particles were later named "air ions" by the British scientist Faraday.
The word "ion" was taken from the Greek language, in which it means
to "go" or "wander about."
Ions are invisible particles, either molecules or atoms, which bear an
electric charge. Atoms, for instance, consist of an atomic nucleus that
contains neutral neutrons and positively charged protons, as well as
orbiting electrons that are negatively charged. When an atom is in a
neutral condition, the number of protons (+) and electrons (-) is
equal. When the number of protons and electrons is not the same, the
particle becomes an ion that is either positively or negatively charged.
Generally speaking, positive ions are harmful to the human body,
while negative ions are beneficial.

Positive Ion: an atom (or molecule) that has lost


one or more electrons due to a high-energy
impact. Natural forces that generate positive ions
include the decay of radioactive minerals, radon
gas, forest fires, lightning and ultraviolet rays.

Negative Ion: an atom (or molecule) that has


gained one or more extra negatively charged
electrons. Negative ions are naturally generated
by evaporating water.

Electrons are highly sensitive to shock, impact, electric current and


atmospheric change. Air pressure or heat, for instance, can cause
electrons to escape from atoms and dissipate, increasing the number
of positive ions in the air. As mentioned above, the balance of
negative and positive ions in the air is easily disturbed.

A good example of this can be seen in the changes in ion levels
associated with storm activity. Several hours before a thunderstorm,
for instance, low atmospheric pressure causes the number of positive
ions in the air to increase dramatically, to levels that sometimes
exceed 5000 ions per cm.
In contrast, during a storm, negative ions increase to several
thousand per cm while positive ions decrease, often to below 500 per
cm. (You can detect similarly high negative ion concentrations near
waterfalls - see the chart below.)
In our daily lives, as well, we can directly experience the electricity of
ions in the air in the form of static electricity - especially in winter,
when the air is dry. Static is caused by a high ratio of positive to
negative ions because of a lack of moisture in the air.

FAR INFRARED
Far Infrared Ray are waves of energy, totally invisible to the naked
eye, capable of penetrating deep into the human body, where they
gently elevate the body's surface temperature and activate major
bodily functions.
Benefits:
Far Infrared expands capillaries which stimulates increased
blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation.
Far Infrared is excellent for detox. Scientists in Japan report
that in the FIR treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat
expands the capillaries and then initiates the start of a process
to dissolve hidden toxins. Far Infrared thereby promotes
elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood:
Poisons, carcinogenic heavy metals - toxic substances from
food processing - lactic acid, free fatty acids, and subcutaneous
fat associated with aging and fatigue - excess sodium
associated with hypertension - and uric acid which causes pain.
Furthermore, if sebaceous glands are activated, accumulated
cosmetics in pores can be eliminated through the skin (sweat
and oil glands) rather than by the kidneys.

Far Infrared stimulates enzyme activity and metabolism - One
hour under the Hotouse improves metabolism. FIR heat aids in
breaking down cellulite - trapped water, fat and waste.
Far Infrared may induce the killing of varied pathogenic
(disease causing) bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.
Far Infrared promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having a
positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells
necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it increases
growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all
necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. Excellent for
healing burns, scar tissue and skin problems.
Far Infrared relieves nervous tension and relax autoneuro
muscles thereby helping the body make the most of its intended
healing abilities. FIR reduces soreness on nerve endings and
muscle spasms, as muscle fibers are heated.
Far Infrared strengthens the Immune System by stimulating
increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by the
bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus.
Far Infrared strengthens the Cardiovascular System by causing
heart rate and cardiac output increase, and diastolic blood
pressure decrease - Extensive research by NASA in the early
1980's led to the conclusion that far infrared stimulation of
cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain
cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long
space flight.
